Le Bas de Rue Du Nez Wn224
(The Bottom of Street Of the Nose
: a Babel Fish translation), situated about 10ks west of Cherbourg centre, this French fort was built to protect the western side of the naval dockyard from attack. Possibly built around the 1800 and then re-fortified by the Germans and incorporated into the Atlantikwall.
